I offer stress management treatment to Palm Beach County including Palm Beach and West Palm Beach. Stress is a part of life but doesn’t have to take control of your life. You know when it’s out of hand.
Who is without it? Stress is a normal part of life. It is defined as the body’s response to life’s demands. It’s the internal, conditioned response to perceived external pressures. In manageable amounts, stress is actually a motivator, allowing us to complete tasks and meet deadlines. But when excessive, it causes the body to secrete excess cortisol and we experience a feeling like we’re jumping out of our skin. Some examples of highly stressful events include:
• Loss of a job
• Birth of a child
• Moving/ relocating
• Death of a loved one
Since many of the above are a normal part of the life cycle, everyone will experience one or more of these at some point. It’s not the event but in the individual capacity to handle it. Few of us will deny feeling stressed, but for many, stress can become overwhelming and even debilitating.
How I Can Help?
I utilize a variety of modalities, tailored to your own unique needs, to help with the sense of overwhelming stress. Among some are Somatic Experiencing, EMDR, Emotionally Focused Therapy, guided imagery and progressive muscle relaxation. I tailor our work to your own unique individual needs and work collaboratively asking for feedback from you on how I doing? I look forward to speaking with you!
